Very thorough examination...

Since you posted this their telegram has been pretty silent. Just people wishing each other Good Morning.

Its very rare that a project with a plagiarized white paper goes on to be legitimate.

However, I know that Tron and Justin Sun got in trouble for that -- they quickly revised their white paper, and have been pretty darn successful ever since.

Great spot.
It wasn't our intention for this to happen.
We would review our whitepaper immediately.
We are the coinware team are sorry for the inconveniences.
Thanks. Just give us some time
